great value for a credit

I wouldn't have baught these separately but for a single credit well worth it.

The stories range in quality but there are a couple which for a Torchwood fan are well worth a listen.

Why oh Why did they ruin this series by changing the format?? I could easily have seen it going the same way as Supernatural if they'd just left it alone!!

fantastic short stories

some amazing short stories by some amazing actors. It kept me on the edge of my seat! Once I started listening I couldn't stop, I didn't want to stop! I would definitely recommend the audiobook to any sci-fi fan.
We need a lot more from Touchwood!!

Captivating!

What did you like most about Torchwood Tales?

The story’s were so intriguing ,and so well written, that I kind of wished it was made into an actual episode of Torchwood . The narrators had their own unique style of storytelling that captivated my imagination completely. Looking for other Torchwood audio dramas to add to my collection.

Who was your favorite character and why?

That’s a hard question,I like all the characters but the one that actually made me laugh while I was listening was the character Rhys,played by Kai Owen.

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?

Again Rhys,Kai Owen is probably my favourite narrators of Torchwood story’s ,followed but Gareth David Lloyd and Burn Gorman .

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Torchwood-The original team.
Trying not to be biased but after COE, Torchwood wasn’t the same.

Loved it. I want more!!

Listening to a Torchwood audiobook allows the listener to escape into their own imagination. It works really well especially where the monster would be too difficult or cheesy to portray on film.

I thought the readers were fantastic also and I look forward to more stories.

I did not finich this book

The first few stories had a good buildup and interesting plot, that all of a sutten were finished. It annoyed me. There were a few good stories but where I dropped the book where where they reached the torchwood season 4 timeline. The part where they fucked up the series. From there on I had no interest in the rest of the stories
